MAXILLOFACIAL SILICONE PROSTHESIS FOR A PATIENT WITH UNILATERAL EAR DEFECT: A CLINICAL CASE REPORT

Dr Brajendra Dubey, Dr Manu Verma

Abstract


Congenital or acquired loss of body parts is of common occurrence and replacement of such parts for restoring their lost function and esthetics is done by using various bio‑compatible materials. Proper assessment of the disfigured body parts and a feasible approach to rehabilitating them has for long, been the target of clinical maxillofacial prosthodontics. The aim of this article is to present a case report of such a silicone prosthesis for a patient with a congenital unilateral auricular defect.
